Back to our normal self
Well, Nick is finally coming back to being his normal cheery self. We were not sure if his depressed behavior was all from the Steroids or a combination of steroids and chemo or if the side effects of radiation were starting to kick in. It looks like it was one of the first two. This week at clinic Nick allowed them to take blood from his arm and they were succesful on the first try. He then got another shot and handled it O.K. Nick came with me to work today. It wasn't that much fun I ran around trying to meet with people before we left to come back home. Nick was a trooper and was very patient and quiet. Nick will not be going to school this week as they are taking a field trip to McDonald's. We don't go there anymore, couldn't imagine what is lurking in that play place. Tom had a cold late last week into the weekend and it was a chore to keep Nick away. Looks like we might have dodged that one. Our heightened attention to sickness really makes you aware of all the people sniffling and sneezing in the world. Something I never paid that much attention to before. It is kind of like when you buy a car and then realize the other million of them on the road. Keep up the prayers, we feel them every day. Thank You!
